The secret of getting ahead is getting started. ~ Sally Berger

Life is easy when you’re born with a silver spoon. It is very unlikely that one would work if their parents were billionaires, but these ladies chose the road not taken and carried the legacy of their parents forward and even built their own business empires.
They are inspirations for today’s youth.
